It was not an easy go. My dad remembers times when the family was so poor they ate "everything but the squeal" when they butchered a hog.
Fortunately, the Muellers knew how to work hard and find success in unlikely opportunities. When they discovered they could buy bent salvage rebar and angles at low prices, they invented a machine to straighten them out for resale. Hard work and unorthodox thinking allowed them to consistently make "a silk purse out of a sow’s ear."
My dad and uncle sold Mueller Supply Co. in 1984, the year after I started my own business, Mueller Metals, Inc. We sell and trade steel worldwide. Mueller Metals recently was named one of the largest U.S. importers of Mexican light-walled square and rectangular tubing.
In 2007, Mueller Metals opened Spring Creek™Products, a division dedicated to delivering our steel customers an economical line of farm and ranch-related gate hinges, latches, fencing products, safety products, welding supplies, industrial hardware, ornamental items, tie down accessories, and our own patented Total Cut Pipe Guides. We constantly add quality, low-cost, proven winners to our warehouses in San Angelo, Texas.
